From what I can gather, there isn’t much good accommodation in Chiang Khong, but the Teak Garden is really exceptional.
We had a room overlooking the river – our first room’s balcony had the restaurant deck just below, but they were more than happy to shift us. The room we ended up in had a great balcony looking out over the river to Laos on the other side – just perfect. It was a small room but in no way cramped. It was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom likewise. Aircon was good, WIFI good, and the bed was fine.
The restaurant serves excellent food – the dinner we had was nice but the portions small – but at those prices just order another meal.
Location wise it’s out of town but is close to the dock for your morning trip over to Laos. Less than 5 minutes by tuk tuk.
We made a point of getting to Chiang Khong early to have a look around, but didn’t find much to look at. So I wouldn’t rush to get there. It’s really just a jumping off point. Having said that, it is nice to spend a couple of hours on the balcony overlooking the river.
I would definitely stay at the Teak Garden again!
